Stolen from Grandma goes to the seaside.

If you haven't already heard of style blog, Stolen from Grandma, then I suggest you take a look. The lovely Claire knows how to rock vintage style like no ones business. Her latest seaside style snaps feature one of my all time favourite Ginger Fox vintage finds. I can't imagine a better home for the fine cotton fancy. Doesn't she just look perfect?

Grace. Patience. Presence

My inaugural tattoo, happily etched into my flesh by the talented Miles of WA INK, Fremantle. The product of 6 years of musing and designing; I went through 6 different designs and 5 body placements before deciding on this particular tattoo. Thankfully it turned out great and I couldn't be happier with it.

I took the dive into ink land a couple of weeks ago, and this day I have dubbed 'The Day of Pain'. In a mighty feat of planning I went from a morning dentist appointment (2 needles and a numb face) straight to the tattoo parlour for a second dose of stabby pain. Worth it? Hell yeah!

My latest market outfit. Always a difficult decision to make in the mornings as I find the balance between style, functionality and whatever hasn't been banished to the laundry pile.

Bunny Hop & the Kreativ Blogger Award

Notoriously forgetful and, for the better part of most days, lost in the clouds, I am simply awful at following up on things. At the start of each year I hit the shops full of optimism, and buy myself the perfect diary. This year it was an A5, 3 ring binder in a green, grey and black print. I even bought multi coloured paper for each binder section; calender, notes & critical information, creative notes etc. For that glorious afternoon, after departing Officeworks, I felt on top, organised, adult! Do I use my diary now? Do I even know where my diary is? I think you can guess the answer to those questions.

I received the
Kreativ Blogger Award from Bunny Hop, an amazing Perth blogger, a few weeks ago. A wonderful start to the day, I must say, to find that little nugget of praise for something that you spend countless hours on. However, me being me, I completely forgot to pay it forward. I shall amend that here and now, forthwith!

The stunning & stylish main lady of Bunny Hop

According to the internizzle the Kreative Blogger Award originated in 2008 on a Norwegian blog written by Huldas Verden. Since then it has been traversing the blogospere and making many a proud poster smile.

Here are the rules;

You must thank the person who has given you the award.
  1. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
  2. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
  3. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
  4. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
  5. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
  6. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.
  1. I have always loved dance. Not being a very vocal child, i don't think I expressed this to my parents very well and as such they enrolled me in Karate classes. I hated Karate! When getting dropped off at my second lesson, I locked myself in the car and refused to get out unless they change my after school activity. I was then enrolled in modelling classes. hmmm still not dance though, just glorified walking.
  2. I like the way my hands smell after cutting onions.
  3. My right foot is the bigger foot.
  4. A woman once ran up to me and my dad and, after confirming we were actually father and daughter, exclaimed; "I didn't think is was possible for a daughter to be taller than her father!"
  5. I will watch the same movie up to 4 times in one day.
  6. My cars to date have been called - Barney Krunk, Perry & Uter.
  7. My parents did finally allow me to join a dance class when I was younger. I learned how to clog.
  1. Dropstitch- The blog that made me want to start a blog of my very own.
  2. Kitty's Drawings - Digital artistry and mad sewing skills.
  3. Fickle Sense - A cross continental inspirational extravaganza
  4. Tessa Kit - Photographer extraordinaire
  5. Peony Lim - Freaken sublime.
  6. Blood Like Milk - Lindsey finds all the pretty things
  7. Mr Birds Adventures - Instant smiles.
And that's it folks.

South East Asian - Suburban Master Chef

I have some very clever pals indeed. Several of my foodie friends are members of a monthly Master Chef challenge night. A theme is decided and each would-be chef is assigned a course; entree, main, desert. The mighty setting for the latest culinary battle; exotic tastes of South East Asia.

I don't think I will be able to adequately express just how stuffed I was after this amazing feast. Now please excuse me as I have forgotten the names of the dishes, but I will try and make something up for you;


Chicken, coconut, chili and ginger soup.
Chicken Sung Choi Bao with purple & black sticky rice


Banana prawns, tom yum risotto cake,
Scallops garnished with pink grapefruit, kaffir lime leaf, and roasted garlic slice,
Golden money bags


Creamy rice pudding with roasted coconut.

Unfortunately we forgot to take photos of all the dishes but you get the idea; the kids can cook! My pick for the night - The light and zingy coconut, chicken, ginger soup.
